Screen orentation always locked?

I was just wondering who else has it always locked and unlockes it as they need it.

to me it gets in the way more then helps, rotates when I really don't want it to?

When I use any messenger at all, I type in landscape. So no, I keep it unlocked at all times.

Nope! The only time i turn it on is if I have something i purposely need to look at on a weird angle. Other than that, i enjoy the way it rotates.

No, because I often watch internet video in landscape. I would lock the orientation more if it allowed locking to landscape as it does on iPad. I cannot lay on my side to watch landscape video without it going portrait. Don't understand why Apple don't allow it.

Unless I'm planning to watch a video, I keep the lock on.
